Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
I have asked for help before in repairing myself my Mitsubhishi WD62525 TV. I bought a service manual and tried to troubleshoot my TV. It has a blue screen with snowy white cloud in the middle. I read on some forums here that one cause of this problem are bad capacitors on the power ckt. board. So I tried doing it myself, When I got to the chassis, I was stucked and never get into the power board. So finally, I've asked a service tech to come over. Initial diagnostic charge is $95, So the tech guy told me that there 6 bad caps that need to be replaced on the poer board. So I was right to begin with. Now here comes the bad news for me, when I asked the tech how much to repairing my TV. He told me $900 and he needs to take the TV and bring it to his shop. It will take 2 to 3 weeks to repair my TV. Is this right what I'm hearing? So I've questioned the tech guy why is $900 to replaced 6 bad caps (cost maybe $2 to $5 each). Then he mentioned how about the DM module? Then I realized what is the connection between the bad caps and the DM module? Am I hearing it right? My beef is that a fair charge or am I getting fooled because I don't know what I am talking about? Please make your comments anyone who are service tech or had experience with a service tech.
I own a tv repair shop in jacksonville, fl and I know that with that model we always send the chassis to mitsubishi for an overhall this would cost around $900 but we send it to mitsubishi, we dont do it ourselves because there are many parts that should be replaced that only mitsubishi can get, they dont sell them to anyone. BUT your problem just needs the 2 caps in the power supply replaced for now. in the future you might need the rest of the work done but my thoughts are if its not broke dont fix it! So i would take the chassis out and replace the 2 caps in the power board and be done with it untill it brake again. If you cannot get the chassis out send me an email and i will give you some help.
